What about a T6 M2 slide marked D-7161843-7 HSA

I've seen SA, which indicates Springfield, but not HSA?

If you have a rebuilt carbine there is a good likelihood of post war contract parts on it. As shadycon said it was a government contract part made with the latest upgrades. GTG.

Thanks to all. Not that it really matters much. I am going by pics only, but the HSA slide seemed to have a straight angle cut where the pic of a Inland made slide had the corners touched up a tad and a slight curve from heel to heel. Maybe just from wear? This would be where the rocker tab is engaged and dis-engaged.
Just trying to keep learning the good eye deal for parts.
I also hear of fine tuning the M2 for operation. Maybe that's the difference, maybe not.
Just old and found a new hobby. The love for the carbine, and the love to tinker, learn and explore.
Can't play the guitar anymore, so I found my new thrill.
Overall cost is close, but strings are cheaper than ammo for sure, haha... Gibson vs USGI Carbine.
Just adding for no real reason, and happy to say. I sold my Universal square box stock for $102.00 and the complete aluminum trigger housing for $45.00.
I feel better now with the conversion of my Gen 2 Universal to the complete Inland type 2 trigger housing, (shelf parts) and the unmarked pot belly stock I got for $35.00 Very nice by the way, and had to keep the hand guard from the Universal for clearance. Eye candy match is acceptable.
It was a fun mod, no value lost or gained, but the feed improved big time.
Kinda got off track, but still would like to hear input on the first entered.
Added note: Just my opinion. Universal problems, trigger housing assembly first, open cut slide second.
Which, knock on wood. Has never given a problem that was not foreseen.
I did tune down the double springs by clipping a few coils to feel the same as the single spring.
??? I'm happy with the outcome. I just never saw a reason to make a good thing any different.
My piston block is welded, I can't imagine a brazed one for any reason. Lets just make everything more of a chore and have heavy springs. Maybe I'm missing the thought of that?
Later carbine lovers, I love to learn and share my known experience, good or bad, and my little advise or knowledge to others. 1% either direction is always good.

I have one of those slides mentioned in the original post on a gen-1 Universal. The function is flawless with either a round bolt or flat bolt and the bluing looks good, but if one looks closely, he can find a couple of small forging marks (voids). It was obviously never used until Universal built this gun. Works just fine.

The only post war parts that were rejected by the government were the Viet Nam era Herlo barrels. What ever you do stay away from them. Many problems occur with them and there is no way you can try and make them work. Sold on the surplus market as real USGI surplus and they are not. Some even stamped with a fake acceptance stamp on the flat or side.
